Greetings from the Critique Club
By Inspzil, again!!

Composition - I find this subject pretty appealing, but there are definitely some issues that I feel hurt the street value of this photo. I think the lighting being inconsistent from the bottom of the pipes to the top is a big issue. They look sort of blue on the bottom, true color with highlights in the middle, and sort of dull toward the top. The shadowed part at the top I think is the biggest sticking point for me. I'm not too crazy about the crop. I'm looking for something sort of framing them in, distinguishing these pipes from just the regular part of the wall. Its hard to tell if where they end on the pic is really the end, or just a spot where it was convenient to cut it. The pipes on the right being cut off at the top is a bit of a problem as well.

Technical stuff - Honestly, about as good as a person can take a picture. exposure, dof, focus, all there with bells on. Terrific.

Overall - The crop of this pic really leaves me hanging. This picture makes me think that its a much bigger picture, but here's the inset for the details of the pipe. It seems rather incomplete to me. The pipes are great as is the wood, but it needs something to make it whole. Interesting photo, but it lacks the visual impact it needs to be really successful - Good luck!! Bob (again)

I really like the color of the pipes and how they contrast against the golden framing. This show might have benefited if you would have cropped in to the shot just a bit more. Overall, very nice.
